thanks.

Are we supposed to fill out the Financial aid web app on SIS in addition to needaccess right now? I ask because the email I got stated that we need to fill out our fafsa + needacess, but doesnt mention anything about the financial aid app form on SIS

Quick question: There's an alumni reception in my city next wednesday that admitted students are invited to. Should I attend? I don't know anyone else going, and I don't really know what this is. Anyone have experience with this?

Got this info from the financial aid office regarding the financial aid application on SIS:

The Law School does not use the University Financial Aid Application (UFAA) online web form. All you need to complete for consideration of aid is the FAFSA and Need Access. We anticipate our review process and financial aid award notifications to begin sometime in March. You will receive an email communication from the Director when your financial aid has been packaged and is available for you to view on SIS.


Hope this is helpful.

Just as a Jeffersonian update. I want contacted about signing a lease ( number 16 on wl) and she sent me all the available apartments and there were 2 one bedrooms and 6 two bedroom left. I am signing a lease for a two bedroom (tbh tho I might be putting it back into play) so do the math on what is left.

Did you find an answer to this? I guess since the email didn't mention it, we shouldn't worry about it? Why would it not mention it after mentioning the other two?

Financial aid wise, I was told that (loan) packages/offers should start rolling out in March sometime (possibly before ASD). Dean Richard said to check back in April for possible scholarship money.

On another note, anyone else hear back from the Jeffersonian? I'm pretty far down the list and need to know if I should be looking for a place while I'm down in March.

What all did we need for Financial aid? I filled out Needaccess and Fafsa? Was there any kind of scholarship or extra form? Seems like every day I find some new form to fill out for a school's aid.


Also I posted about the Jeffersonian a couple posts up. I am signing my lease today. I am not sure I will be using the apartment and if not there will be another two bedroom back on the list around the end of April but if I do use it I will need a roommate as well.

Just the FAFSA and the Need Access. I accidentally submitted the UFAA too before they removed it from being required. They don't seem to use it for the law school anymore.

Just heard back from the Jeffersonian (37th on the waitlist) for a 1 bedroom unfurnished. They will only have one of those left after me.

If we have to check back in April for scholarships, doesn't that mean we will have to withdraw from the other schools that could've been bargaining chips?

I should have prefaced: Dean Richard told me, an ED acceptee, to check back in April. If you have leverage of any sort you can probably contact them sooner to negotiate.

Speaking of financial aid, do you guys know about how much CoL we get to finance? Does it vary per person? I have a car payment and a few other bills, and I'm trying to figure out how much I'll have left for rent.

UVA Law Financial Aid Website wrote: However, it is important for students to understand that their financial aid packages generally cannot exceed the total cost of attendance budget in any given year.


UVA Law Financial Aid Website wrote:J.D. Program, 2012-13 School Year
Living Expenses:
16,000


Fine. If no one else will Google it for me, I will just Google it myself.

Seriously though, is that for the calendar year? I'm gonna need a roommate or three.

I can't say I've ever heard of a person who maxed out on loans and was desperately searching around for money. Charlottesville is mad cheap. I come in way under the projected COL every year.

For my first year, I took out maybe 10k total for living expenses and was fine. I didn't have car payments or anything, though.
